tried to book something for our sailing on Celebrity in 2 weeks however their number is out of service and no emails ..... i guess i should take this as a hint....but just wondering

we did Jolly Pirates a year ago and enjoyed it .... but also felt they were too many kids for us

A friend talked to Jethro from the Octopus today. He is still in business.

We have received two emails from him in the last few weeks although I have had to resend the email twice before he responded the second time. We are booked on a sailing trip with him at the end of March. He gave us 2 numbers to call him: 59333739 or 5864281. Maybe try emailing him again and use a brief subject title. Good luck!

Sailed with Jethro last week. WONDEFUL!!! He's quite colorful and the sailing was relaxing.... people of all ages and we were the only ones of 17 passengers who were on the ship.

How was the snorkeling? We love sailing AND snorkeling. Is this the excursion for us, or would just a beach day be fine?

Can we do that as a half day tour and still hand out at one of the beaches nearby? Any recommendation for a beach to go after this, not too far away? Thanks!
Yes, very easily. The Octopus departs from Palm Beach. MoomBa is a great place close by for you to relax after your excursion. http://www.moombabeach.com/component/ (http://www.moombabeach.com/component/)

We just did Aruba for a week, and this was really a great trip on the Octopus. Only 11 signed up, so we had lots of room. Breakfast breads and rolls early on, and a fine lunch later. Took the morning trip..............

We usually are there for just the day on a cruise ship, and have been 4 times that way. Decided to do my wifes birthday for a week, and will go back for 2 weeks next time. Some really great restaurants around the high rise area too.......................baffles:D
